situation. for the latest we begin with jon karl. jon, you broke the story of this framework late last night. this morning we were all told the leaders were going to inform their rank and file members of the details this afternoon, but hour after hour has gone by. the briefings haven't taken place, there's no final deal. >> the reason why it hasn't happened is because they have a few minor issues to be worked out. i'm told they are relatively minor issues. once that happens, the hard work happens, which is they have to convince enough rank and file democrats and republicans to support the bill to get it passed. a rare sunday on capitol hill. senators rushing to work and even rarer these days, the leaders actutually smiling. they finally have come together. congressional leaders and the president on a debt plan. it looks like this. a debt ceiling increase of up to $2.4 trillion. that's enough to last through the presidential election. agreement on up to $1.2 trillion in spending cuts over 10 years. a new congressional committee to recommend additional deficit reduction of up to $1.5 trillion.
's jon karl took your messages straight to the lawmakers in the middle of the mess. jon? >> reporter: yes, diane. we have -- we went and talked to members of congress in both parties in both chambers, gave their reaction to what they're hearing in terms of the anger from the american people. a group of freshmen house republicans descended on the white house today demanding the president come up with a plan to deal with the debt. >> don't keep shirking your responsibility. >> what is your written plan? >> reporter: but across the country, voters are telling washington they're disgusted with all sides. >> they need to get off the dime. >> we've had enough. we want you to work together. >> get it done. for god's sakes. >> reporter: we went around capitol hill to put your concerns directly to those in power. starting with democratic senator mark warner of virginia. senator, this is peggy lemons from richmond, virginia. >> if we're really not careful, we're going to end up with a depression that is far worse than the one that our parents and our grandparents lived through. >> reporter: can you
before midnight. jon karl is watching it all from capitol hill. the speaker says he'll try again today. >> reporter: he will. but, george, this debt ceiling crisis has become a political crisis for republicans. boehner's going to convene all 240 house republicans this morning to make 1 final push for it. but the reason he pulled the bill last night is he just couldn't get enough republicans to pass his own bill. republican leaders worked late into the night, trying to get the votes to pass their own debt ceiling bill. reporters swarmed around utah republican jason chaffetz as he emerged from a tense meeting in speaker boehner's office. he told us he's still not sure. how much pressure is there on you to change your mind on this? >> i'm very plenty surprised that they are not twisting and ripping arms off. >> reporter: the speaker said he can't do his job if you guys aren't there to support him. >> i am fully supportive of the speaker. >> reporter: this is his most important vote yet as speaker. >> i just can't support his bill. but i do support the speaker. >> reporter: but for speaker
jon karl who's been all over this story from the jump. jon, we've got the boehner plan and the reid plan. everybody in washington knows neither of these things can pass, so what, if anything, is being done right now to craft some sort of compromise? >> reporter: well, there are, as you heard jim mention, quiet negotiations going on between harry reid and mitch mcconnell. trying to find middle ground. mitch mcconnell has been on the phone several times, a many told, with vice president biden over the last several days. they are trying to find one last-ditch effort to get what everybody knows needs to happen, dan, and that is something that has bipartisan support. i got to tell you, though, the atmosphere is so poisoned here, the question is, once they get that agreement, can they pass it? >> well, let me pick up on that because there's been so much tough talk, even some trash talk, i wonder if there is another wiggle room rhetorically for r e hard-liners on either side to back down. >> reporter: well, i think there -- maybe not the hard-liners, but i think there actually is wiggle ro

[ jon i wouldn'tut it my table at home, i wouldn't bring it in. my name's jon forsythe, and i sea fd differently. >> greta: here's more of our interview with house majority leader eric cantor. >> we heard the president last night, again he's talking about taxing billionaires, millionaires, corporate jet owners that has nothing to do with the discussion now. we know the class warfare he's engaged in. it is not what republicans are about. republicans are about trying to straighten out the tax code, fill the loopholes, but bring down rates for everybody. in contrast to what the president has been insisting which is to raise taxes on-the-job creators, small business that republicans are trying to help get back into the game to get people back to work. the scenario is one, we pass the boehner bill, it can get to the president, i believe that the bill has in there the terms that were discussed with the senate majority leader harry reid. with provisions that he likes in there. >> greta: so the onus is against president obama? >> he doesn't get a v
appearing stronger heading into the 2012 race than he was just a few weeks ago. we want to bring in jon karl to help weigh in on these numbers. jon, we were talking earlier on the surface it seems like a few points shift here. but given the backdrop of this economy and unemployment this is fairly dramatic. >> reporter: is pretty dramatic. and the factor seems to be the debt ceiling standoff. take a look at the numbers against mitt romney, the president has opened up a lead, a pretty significant lead you see there of 51% to 44%. the lead is even more dramatic against other other candidates. look where he was a month ago, david. mitt romney was tied with president obama. the big factor here, in fact, the only factor that has really changed is that independent voters have moved away from the republicans and towards the president. >> so, independent voters watching the debt showdown and weighing in. >> reporter:s that's exactly right. and don't like the way the republicans have been handling it. >> speaking of the republicans, you take a look at how they're stacking up with the race. and a famil
's bring in jake tapper and jon karl from capitol hill. jon, they tried to work on a smaller reduction deal but that didn't go much better. >> reporter: the divide is as deep as ever. they outlined 1.7trillion cuts, not enough but democrats called it completely unacceptable because it included cuts to medicare and no tax revenue increases. steny hoyer said he couldn't get a senior democratic vote for a plan. >> that means that it couldn't pass. courthouse have any idnew ideas >> reporter: they're pushing for the big deal, a lot of pain at one, entitle tks. president obama outlined the plan and said, you can't expect seniors to give up $500 when you went own ask for $5 from people like me. wealthy individuals. >> jon, the leader mitchell mcconnell is looking at a contingency plan which could be a short-term extension. >> reporter: he's tight-lipped about what they mean. they could give him a chance to accept that which he ruled out or one with no tax increases. >> the president very clear on that. >> reporter: he said he's not signing any short-term plans. the debt ceiling needs to be raised

following overnight but democrats and republicans seem no closer to a deal. abc's jon karl is covering it from capitol hill. we are seeing fire from the house speaker. >> reporter: we sure are. this vote today on his debt ceiling plan is the highest-stakes vote of his term as speaker of the house, and he is doing everything he can to get those tea partyers in line. john boehner is now demanding republicans stand with their party. in a closed door meeting he had a stern message for tea partyers who just don't like his debt ceiling plan. boehner told them get your ass in line. sources at the meeting tell abc news, a day after another republican leader attempted to rally the troops with a clip from the movie "the town." >> i need your help. i can't tell you what it is. you can never ask me about it later and we're going to hurt some people. >> which car are we going to ta take? >> reporter: allen west liked what he heard. >> i told him i would drive the car. >> they could have used "rudy," "hoosiers," "band of brothers" but this is the movie they decided on. >> reporter: maybe they can us

the latest for us overnight. good morning, jon. >> reporter: good morning, robin. we are reaching crisis time here on capitol hill. the republicans delayed a vote on their bill in the house because they don't even have enough republican votes to pass their own bill. democrats don't have the votes to pass their bill either. the only thing certain up here right now is that everything is in doubt. >> we appreciate you calling. >> reporter: the calls are pouring in. plenty of outrage but like congress itself, the callers seem hopelessly divided. >> i would really like for him to hold the line against any deal in congress. >> i am calling to ask that you cooperate with the president's efforts. >> reporter: the whole place seems to have broken down. republicans can't even convince some of their own members to vote for the republican plan. in a closed door meeting republican leader eric cantor told fellow conservatives to "stop whining and support the bill." acknowledging "the debt limit vote sucks." across the country, that's the view of washington itself. >> no one is certainly listening to the pe
